Guidance from SGI President Daisaku Ikeda

A translation of “To My Friends” published in the Seikyo Shinbun based on President Ikeda’s recent guidance, and more.


It’s about that time when we might be starting to feel fatigued from all those

hot summer activities!
Make sure you follow the rules of the road
and keep your eyes on the road at all times.
Do not do anything that distracts you from driving
like talking on the phone or texting.
Use 10 billion times more caution than you would normally.*
Let’s have an accident free day each and every day!

*As I have said before, be millions of times more careful than ever.”
– “The Hero of the World”, WND-I, page 839


“Regard your service to your lord as the practice of the Lotus Sutra. This is what is meant by ‘No worldly affairs of life or work are ever contrary to the true reality.'”

“The fighting spirit of one person can rouse the fighting spirit in everyone’s heart. As Nichiren Daishonin writes: ‘When the lion king . . . roars, the hundred cubs will then feel emboldened’ (WND-1, 949).”
